This Land is Your Land. The Problem of Land Utilization. Environmental Ecological Education Project.
Helfrich, Carl; And Others
This unit, written for seventh-grade school children, focuses on the variety of factors that are involved in land utilization. It specifically examines land use in St. Louis County, Missouri, and discusses such concepts as the variety of ways man has used this land, the influence surface features have on land use, the influence of socio-cultural factors on land use, the effect of natural disasters--particularly in regard to improper land use, and the variety of careers in every aspect of land use. The unit includes the behavioral objectives and the expected student criteria for evaluation, pretests and posttests, suggested methodologies for teaching each concept, a bibliography of both teacher and student resource books, a glossary of terms, a list of appropriate films, and environmental resource inventory data sheets for each of the junior high schools in the Parkway School District.
